The operator of a nude dancing club closed by Westminster police in January has started a similar club in Stanton that remains open despite the city's efforts to shut it down. Sheriff's deputies closed TJ's Theater in a shopping center at 10350 Beach Blvd. within hours of its Aug. 5 opening because owner Theron M. Smith had not obtained a city permit for live entertainment. However, Smith obtained a court order on Monday allowing him to operate pending an Aug. 30 hearing in U.S.

The City Council last week approved a new ordinance that will use property liens to collect code enforcement costs for nuisance abatement. If the city finds it necessary to clean up a home or business because of excessive code violations, the cost of the cleanup will show up on the owner's property taxes, said City Manager Terry Matz.

A parent's complaint about adult magazines in a local convenience store has prompted the drafting of the city's first ordinance regulating their display. Shubi Steininger was shopping in a local convenience store last month when her 11-year-old son Jeffrey noticed the sexually explicit covers of several adult magazines. "I was shopping, and he got a candy bar. He said, 'Mom, did you see those magazines by the candy bar rack?' " Steininger said.

Yet another Orange County city is moving toward limits on motel stays. Stanton City Council members agreed Tuesday night that restrictions imposed by nearby cities compel them to pass a measure of their own. Buena Park, Cypress and Garden Grove all have laws--prompted by concerns about crime and substandard living conditions--preventing motel guests from staying longer than 30 days.

The City Council on Tuesday voted 3 to 0, with Councilmen William C. Estrada and David John Shawver absent, to impose a curbside parking ban on the eastside section of Fern Avenue. Officials hope the ban will improve street access and traffic visibility on the street; residents and truck drivers had raised safety concerns about the reduced visibility. The ban, which takes effect in a month, means vehicles will no longer be allowed to park 97 feet to 155 feet south of Main Street on Fern Avenue.

Threats of legal action came just a few hours too late to prevent the mailing of a proposed ordinance to the city's 11,200 registered voters. A political action group affiliated with the Apartment Assn. of Orange County on Wednesday called the mailing an illegal use of public funds to build support for Measure B, which would fund police and fire services through a public safety services fee. The measure comes before Stanton voters June 3.

In a notice to disgruntled tenants who have been lobbying the City Council for a rent control ordinance, lawyers for the owner of Katella Mobile Home Estates accuse them of trying to destroy her business and demand that they stop. The letter was sent last week by attorneys for Marsha Carter to about 20 residents of the city's largest mobile home park. The notice, which refers to the residents as "conspirators," demands that they stop distributing newsletters critical of conditions in the park.

The cost of trash collection in this city is going down. Effective Jan. 1, trash fees for residents will drop to $14 a month from the current rate of $15.55. The fees for businesses will be cut 1.5% to 6.6%, depending on the type of service that the city's waste hauler provides, City Manager Terry Matz said. Some businesses have their trash picked up more frequently than others, which would cause the fee to vary, he said.

The City Council tonight will consider changing the city's bingo ordinance so that a music group can offer more than one game a week. Members of the Kingsmen, a drum and bugle corps, came to the council in 1992 to request permission to operate a bingo parlor to finance their music competitions. They won approval, with the condition that if neighboring merchants or law enforcement agencies complained, the games would end. The city also limited any bingo license holder to one game a week.

Like a would-be actor, Stanton is hoping to be discovered by Hollywood. The City Council passed an ordinance on Tuesday that will make it easier for producers to get permits to make movies in their town. "Maybe we can finally get Elizabeth Taylor to come to Stanton," said Councilman Sal Sapien. In 1993, Taylor, then married to Stanton-raised Larry Fortensky, was invited to the dedication of Stanton's new City Hall. Neither attended the ceremony.

Before deciding whether to enact rent control for mobile homes, the City Council decided to conduct a study to find out how much it will cost the city if controls are enacted. The council instructed the city staff to research several cities in California that have rent controls for mobile home dwellers to see how much they spend administering the ordinance.
